Desperate times make people more desperate. I guess they thought no one would be suspicious about seeing an older car. In the process of doing things like this, these bums don't care about how it disrupts the owner's life.

This is a real sad story. Here a woman was turning things around, and have this incident. I believe this will make her a stronger person. My heart goes out to this woman, and my prayers.

Why is there a chop chop in little Grand Rapdis? You would expect chop shops in Detroit but Grand Rapids?
Our law enforcement has gone right down the shitter!

Not that I am making excuses but could this potentially be another sign of desperation in an attempt to survive in a failing economy. I seriously doubt this is the case here but it is an interesting twist that for once I would like to see the news follow up on. Desperation is never an excuse for breaking the law. But I think it is about time we get "the rest of the story" when reporting an increase in unemployment numbers. Lets take a look at how it affects our mentality which affects the crime rate which affects our prision population which affects our pocketbooks.

I'm willing to bet it was a crack rental and she pissed off her crack source.

I wonder why the thieves cannot be put in a "Chain gang" and forced to do hard labor at prison pay rates to pay for a brand new car plus interest for this woman?

It will serve them right....and teach them a lesson for not donating to the Republicans Party.(A good way to buy get out of jail free cards!)

Patty, you may want to venture out of your cave once a year. I love the morons you play the blame game especially pointed at the police. Clueless, use that as your call name.

If you would have read more closely you would have noticed that this happened in Muskegon and not Grand Rapids. Perhaps you should go back to school

Scrap metal. It's probably at Louis Padnos' lot downtown by now.

Too bad that they had to choose this car. Most people who drive olders is because that is all that they can afford which is why this is affecting her so badly. Now if they had stolen a newer, nicer car such as a Cadillac or something like that then it wouldn't affect the owner so much because they probably could go out and get another. I feel bad for this women who truely seems to be trying to get her life in order.

This is obvious. The cars in Detoilet are either on blocks or already owned by the chop shop operators.

If they stole it for scrap metal there would be more metal in older cars and less people would pay attention to an older car being taken apart.

I feel really bad for this poor woman to have gone thru all that start putting her life together and then to have her transportaion taken away.

What is with some of you people ? Just because you have never done anything wrong like drinking, smoking, doing crack, whatever doesn't give you the right to say she deserves this. Get over yourselves. Nobody is perfect. Damn !
